Wearable Heraldry from Canada

Here’s a couple of humorous heraldic tee shirts that I purchased in far western Canada and far eastern Canada during a couple of trips there.

The one on the left, which I found in Victoria on Vancouver Island, is pretty much self-explanatory. It’s also a very comfortable shirt to wear. It seems to be softer than most of my other tee shirts, so I really enjoy wearing this one. And, sometimes, springing it on my heraldry enthusiast friends!

The one on the right, which, as it notes, I purchased in Quebec, is a take-off on the Ferrari logo, keeping the colors of the shield and the Italian tricolor above the shield, but substituting a moose for the rampant (or forceny) horse, and the word “Quebec” for “Ferrari”, though retaining the typeface. It was one of those that, when I saw it, I just knew that I had to buy it! It was simply too funny to pass up.
